Discarding your deck means that the next time you draw cards (usually during Clean-up, for your next hand) you'll reshuffle, so any cards you've gained since your previous reshuffle can be drawn. As such, deck discarders are excellent at cycling. While this ability is either optional or one of a number of choices on all of these cards, it is usually a good play to discard your deck when you can.
